Course Description: This course is a continuation of topics covered in Calculus I and Calculus II. Topics
include vectors in two and three dimensions, vector operations, lines and planes in space, vector
functions, functions of more than one variable, partial derivatives, directional derivatives, gradients, and
multiple integrals. Solid analytic geometry topics include quadric surfaces, cylindrical and spherical
coordinates and curves in 3-space. Vector calculus topics include vector fields, line integrals, surface
integrals, curl and divergence, Green’s Theorem, Stokes’ Theorem, and the Divergence Theorem. This
course is a dual credit course through the College of Lake County.

Have your required class materials with you.
If there is a warm-up on the board, start it as soon as you walk in.
Be in your seat when the bell rings.
Be ready to learn with a positive attitude.
Actively listen when someone is sharing an idea.
Use technology appropriately.
Check Google Classroom every night for important announcements and to review information
from class that day.
Your grade will be based on points accumulated throughout the course:
1) Homework and Projects (20% of grade) – Homework will be assigned daily. Most of your
homework will be completed using our WebAssign software. You may also be assigned a
worksheet or online activity for homework. Homework assignments will be due on the date
specified on Google Classroom – assignments will typically have a grace period to allow you the
opportunity to ask questions about problems you are struggling with. Late homework
assignments will NOT be accepted. Occasional take-home projects or explorations may be
given to apply the calculus concepts we are learning throughout the course. Keeping up with
the homework is essential for success on the quizzes and exams in this course!
2) Exams and Quizzes (60% of grade) – 4-5 in-class exams will be given each semester covering
material from a chapter or set of related chapters; additionally, in-class quizzes covering specific
topics from a chapter will be given in preparation for the exams. Retakes will not be offered for
exams and quizzes. No test aids are allowed on exams and quizzes.
3) Final Exam (20% of grade) - A comprehensive final exam will be given at the end of the course
covering all content from both the first and second semesters. Students must take the final
exam in order to pass the course.
No extra credit opportunities will be provided in this course, nor should students expect exam scores to
be curved. The following opportunities are available, though, to allow you to demonstrate growth
throughout each semester:
 Exam Replacement: If a student earns a C or better on the final exam, that score will be used to
replace that student’s lowest exam grade from the semester (provided that the grade to be
replaced is lower than the grade earned on the final exam).
 Quiz Scoring: In addition, a student’s lowest three quiz scores from the course will be dropped.
